Jean Shepherd was the screenwriter and narrator of the classic holiday film "A Christmas Story," as well as an author and television personality. But to a small legion of dedicated fans, he will always be remembered for his radio show on WOR, which consisted of Shep bending his listeners' ears with a seemingly endless and fascinating collection of stories from his childhood, his days in the army, and his observations of modern society. On what would have been his 85th birthday, we salute Jean Shepherd with this retrospective, which includes an interview with Eugene Bergmann, author of "Excelsior You Fathead! The Art & Enigma Of Jean Shepherd," which examines Shepherd's life, career, and legacy as one of America's pre-eminent humorists.
